A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Margot Shaw studied art history at Hollins College and interior design at the University of Texas (her husband is a W&L alum). Once a self-confessed “call and order flowers girl,” Shaw reached a watershed moment when planning her daughter’s wedding. Working alongside the floral and event designer, she recognized the artistry and inspiration involved in floral design and soon began apprenticing with the same designer. Unable to locate a publication that spoke to her passion, she set about creating one and launched Flower Magazine. Now in its 12th year, the magazine has grown to include features on homes, gardens, entertaining, and lifestyle. Margot is a sought-after speaker at antique & garden shows, museums, botanical gardens, interior design centers, and more. Her new book, Living Floral, published by Rizzoli, was released in spring 2019.

Shaw presents portraits of top tastemakers who share their joy of flowers at home in Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers, an inspirational and instructive book for readers who share this passion for nature’s bounty. From interior designers Charlotte Moss, Suzanne Rheinstein, and Bunny Williams, and event designer Tara Guérard to floral and garden experts Sybil Sylvester and P. Allen Smith and culinary consultant Alex Hitz, these luminaries show how to incorporate flowers in everyday home decor and present numerous ways to entertain with flair.
